Non combinations approach- balls are drawn at random. What is the probability that

both are of the same color?

First consider the probability of drawing a red ball at the first draw, a black at the second

and a blue at the third. The first probability is 2/9, the second, conditional on the first is A basket contains 3 blue, 5 black and 3 red balls. If 3

easy to see that any other order is equally likely (the only difference is the order of the

factors in the numerator). So adding 6 equally likely cases we obtain (6*2*3*4)/(9*8*7) = A box contains 5 red, 4 blue, and 3 white balls. In how

Total ways = 3 balls can be chosen in 9C3 ways = 9!/(6!3!) = 9*8*7/3*2*1 = 84

Favorable ways = 1 Red ball, 1 Black ball, and 1 Blue Ball = 2*3*4 = 24

Required probability = Favorable ways / Total ways = 24/84 = 2/7

Here Total outcomes , that is total possible case to pick 3 balls are 9C3 = 84

Favorable Outcome= pick 1 red ball, 1 black ball and 1 blue ball.

To select 3 balls of different colors we have to select one ball of each color.

The total number of selecting 3 balls from the box is 9C3 =84

First consider the probability of drawing a red ball at the first draw, a black at the

second and a blue at the third. The first probability is 2/9, the second, conditional on

the first is 3/8 and the third conditional on the other two is 4/7. The product is

(2*3*4)/(9*8*7). It is easy to see that any other order is equally likely (the only

difference is the order of the factors in the numerator). So adding 6 equally likely

cases we obtain (6*2*3*4)/(9*8*7) = 2/7.

Alternatively you could just pluck the formula for the multivariate hypergeometric

distribution out of the aether.

Ways of choosing 3 from 9 balls = 9C3 = 84.

Now, you can choose a red, a black and a blue ball in 2*3*4 = 24 ways.

Answered Sep 3

3 balls are chosen with each having different colour. It means 1 is black, 1 blue and 1

red.

So

So number of cases of choosing 3 balls at random where all of them are of different

Colors

or in other words

number of cases of choosing 3 balls at random where one is black, one blue and 1 red

is = 3*4*2=24

*Layman explanation*

Let us define three simple events E r , E B andE b for selecting one red ball, one

black ball and one blue ball from the bag respectively.

Let us define another event E for selecting 3 balls randomly from the bag.

= 84 ways

3!6!

n(E) will form the sample space for the question. So, total number of outcomes n(S)

= n(E) = 84

Since we need exactly one red, one black and one blue ball in the output, let us define

another event E c . Clearly, the event E c represents the occurrence of simple events

important to note that these events are mutually independent, to say that occurrence

one event doesn't affect the occurrence of the other event.

E c = E r andE B andE b

n(E c ) = n(E r E B E b )

n(E c ) = 2 3 4 = 24

Probability of selecting all the three different colored balls = Probability of selecting 1

n(S) 84 7

First of all we have 10 balls of which 2 are red, 3 are black and 4 are blue.

If we can think carefully, the question is given that, when 3 balls are drawn, the balls

are of different colors. There are 3 colors. So definitely one ball should be drawn from

each of the color.

So the number of ways of happening the above case is 4C1*3C1*2C1.

Let it be T(E).

The number of ways of drawing three balls from 9 balls is given as 9C3. Let this be

S(E).

Let the probability of happening the given condition be P(E).

Then according to definition of probability, we calculate it as,

P(E)=T(E)/S(E).

P(E)=4*3*2/9C3.

=24/84.

=2/7.

Thanks
